It is designed to improve safety in laboratories that perform chemical synthesis and general research, as well as chemical manufacturing plants. Entries are ordered by empirical formula and indexed under both name(s) and Chemical Abstracts Registry Numbers. This two-volume compendium focuses on reactivity risks of chemicals, alone and in combination; toxicity hazards are only included for unexpected reactions giving volatile poisons. The 2-volume set is available on an introductory price of $320/270/GBP185 until Jan 2007. Will then revert to the list price of $395/330/GBP230?. Order your copy at the introductory price now.
